Cherry Blossom Festival haiku contest

Cherry Blossom Festival haiku contest

You know the cherry blossom haiku you see on bus ads in spring? Now’s your chance to get your haiku up there!

Just enter the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival haiku contest, which is open until on Friday, December 19. Come up with one unpublished English haiku on the theme of cherry blossoms, then visit the festival’s contest website to submit your entry.

As always, winning entries will be displayed on bus and SkyTrain ads next spring. The poems will also be read during a Vancouver Symphony Orchestra performance in spring, too!
